crap this virus is turning all the people into pigeons

The whole rather large "everything civilian in a galaxy-scale civilization is actually run by military people" problem regardless, the thing I still love about Star Trek is the sense of people working in a competent and caring work environment, on non-destructive projects.

I wish we could at least get to there.

Preferably without putting a bunch of generals in charge and running everything like it was a war.

Cos wars aren't fun and "let's run a country like a war" was Lenin's big fun idea.

My little @lyrabon,

Our immigration specialists have determined:
1. He is welcome here. If the standard forms do not let him in, we may use our position as the princess to approve his passage.
2. They don't think a pony with a Y chromosome can make the transport. Perhaps he could be gelded, but that seems unacceptable since there is no guarantee that it will work.

Yours truly,
Princess Celestia

If you use Firefox, especially in a tiling window manager where 'popup' isn't really a meaningful feature, you may find it annoying that websites will open windows that have functionality disabled. Go to about:config, accept the warning, and search for 'dom.disable_window_open_feature'. This will give a list of controls that websites may want to remove in windows they open. Setting any item to 'true' will disable the website's ability to screw with it. #firefox #countWebula

Today I learned that many/most color laser printers layer an array of yellow microdots on top of documents πŸ”¬

This Machine Identification Code en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_ encodes a print date and a serial number unique to the machine. It only became public knowledge in 2004, ~20 year after deployment πŸ˜‘

The Technical University of Dresden released a tool 2 years ago to layer on _even more dots_ to render the MIC unreadable and aid whistleblowers publishing github.com/dfd-tud/deda ✊

So I finally did it. 🐴 ✍️

Dear Princess @Celestia,

Can you ask your department if there is a way to get an XXL earth pony to migrate to for a few seasons? We can massively improve the life of a with some time in the company of Princess Twilight Sparkle.

Does bringing him through require a escort because he’s an earth ? Can he physically fit, as he is roughly your size? Does transportation work on ponies with a Y ?

Rarely is the question asked: Is our machines learning?

And if they are, how do we stop them before it's too late

I /still/ feel the impulse to hug any unicorn I see and pet them and be really nice and try to make them feel better and guard them from harm after a dream I had years and years and years and years ago.

Merlin Mann described all these little things sucking money out of your wallet as eels attached to your neck. How many neck eels can you abide before you decide to get rid of all of them?
